Celebrating Gay Life, on Film

The 6th annual "Out at the Movies" festival at Jacob Burns showcases 14 movies that explore the gay, lesbian, bi, and transgender experience. The series includes documentaries such as Outrage and Before Stonewall which explore the history and politics of gay life in America. Less serious films include Antarctica, a look at the gay experience in Tel Aviv, and Were the World Mine (right), the tale of a teenager who uses a love potion to make his entire town take a walk on the homosexual side. The series starts tomorrow with an opening reception and a showing of Outrage, as well as a live interview with Kirby Dick, the film's director. Through June 3. Jacob Burns Film Center
